Complete and integrated solution for laboratories and production plants where dosing control is needed, such as fragrances, chemicals, etc., each production in batch mode.
WCS is an adaptable solution that is independent of the weighing equipment used in your laboratory or manufacturing plant. It is suitable for connecting manual or digital scales as well as automatic batching robots such as Roxane, Contexa or any other manufacturer.
Integration of the different databases of a company in a single program. Allows to have the databases well managed and integrated.
WCS easily integrates with SAP or any other existing ERP solution in your company through a set of interfaces that allows real-time communication.
Orders are managed entirely by the system. Sending to robots or chemical reactors, manual weighing management, stock control system (SGA) and all this controlled by bar & Qr code readers which avoids human error.
Operating instructions (free text).
Tolerances, this means the minimum and maximum % that the system must accept when a resource is dosing a raw material.
Safety stock (for replenishment purposes).
Classification (solids, viscous, liquids, etc.).
The system identifies users by user name and password, which allows the system to identify the transactions that can be executed by each user.
Plants or laboratories
A plant is a set of storage locations and resources.
Each plant has its own set of interfaces with its resources and also with the ERP.
Locations and stocks
Each location is identified with a barcode.
The locations will allow multiple products and multiple batches
The system allows a formula produced in special locations in the warehouse to be stored.
Each SKU also identifies its lot number, unit of measure and expiration date.
Stocks have a status (unrestricted, blocked or in quality control).
Orders are managed entirely by the system; shipment to robots or chemical reactors, manual weighing management, stock control system (WMS) and all this controlled by bar code readers which avoids human error.
Integration with any ERP implemented in the company.
SAP interfaces are available.
Let’s see an example.
- There are two different types of resources, one is MWS (Manual Weighing Stations) and AWS (Automatic Weighing Stations), such as robots, reactors, mixers, etc.
- A resource belongs to a single plant.
- Each resource can have a set of storage locations assigned to it.
Increase Operational Excellence by connecting all the necessary resources such as operators and robots to work as a team.
Allows connection with automatic dosing robots such as Roxane, Contexa or any other manufacturer. Allows to produce «in sequence» or «in parallel», that is, using the same container to dose the formula through the different resources, for example, starting on a Robot and then transferring the container to a manual workstation, or launching the disaggregated formula to different resources at the same time (the robots and the manual workstation will produce their own containers). Once they are all finished, these containers will need to be brought together before mixing and filling.
It is an adaptable solution that is independent of the weighing equipment used in your laboratory or manufacturing plant. It is suitable for connecting manual or digital balances.
Orders are fully managed by the system; dispatching to robots or chemical reactors, manual weighing management, stock control system (WMS) and all this controlled by barcode readers which avoids human error.
Each location is identified with a barcode or QR code.
A dosing system must gain control of the raw materials used for a formula. For this reason it is very important to have control of WHERE the raw materials are stored in our warehouse, this will allow us to use the right material for the right formula.
Knowing where the raw materials are in our warehouse is important to direct operators to the right place to pick the raw material. The system can guide operators in an optimised way to minimise the route an operator takes during the manual batching process, for example by displaying the raw materials in order to minimise movements through the warehouse.
In some cases, laboratories have a «hot room» where some raw materials must be stored to maintain their (liquid) state which allows for better handling rather than solid. With this system, operators know that a special RM must be taken in a special area.
Using a barcode scanner, operators scan the barcode of the RM receiver and the barcode of the location, both of which must match the RM that the system proposes to dose. Once the RM is dosed, the stock of this location is reduced and allocated to an order or production formula.
On the other hand, the system allows stock movements between locations or even external warehouses to be made to suit locations where stocks are under security levels.
As a set, the WCS provides stock control in the laboratory or on the production plant, as well as tracking and tracing of all these movements.
- Each location is identified with a barcode or QR code.
- Multiple batches are allowed.
- The system allows a formula produced in special locations in the warehouse to be stored.
- Each SKU also identifies its batch number, its unit of measure and expiry date.
- Stocks have a status (unrestricted, blocked or in quality control).
What will make a difference to my company?
- By automating processes, you will have your employees working more productively and involved in the system.
- You will have real-time information to make intelligent decisions on Leverage of resources (raw materials, components…).
- It will add value to your company by differentiating you from your competitors in terms of speed, quality, resource improvement and production capacity.
Is this system suitable for me?
As engineers from the formulation industry, we know the dynamics and processes involved very well.
Our system is specially developed for your sector.
It is not a cost, it is an investment.
It is an investment that allows your company to be more productive and consequently earn more money.
For example, in our latest project, we have increased production capacity by 30%. We have achieved better communication between the existing resources. We have integrated two manufacturing robots into the production process together with the operators, they now work as a team. The key is to optimize the capabilities of each of the resources.
But... I already have these systems.
You may have standard modules that partly fit, but not specific solutions as complete as the ones proposed in this system.
Are you sure you have specific systems for your business?
